August Bookbinding Class

Here are some pictures of our class in August 2011 at the Merry’s Home (thanks for hosting Gail!!).  It was enjoyable to have worked with these ladies and also meet some new people who have now become new friends!!  The photos aren’t in any particular order so make sure you take the time to look at each one.  Notice how they expressed their creativity.  It’s too bad that you can’t touch them and appreciate the beauty of them all.  Their books turned out great for a first hand at bookbinding.  Enjoy!!
